Examining Ancient Artifacts
We know about ancient cultures because we are able to examine the artifacts that they have left behind. Below are some artifacts from the Island of Crete. These are from the Palace at Knossos an Ancient Mycenaean City.
The artifacts below are from the Hellenic Museum in Athens. You will see jewlery, pottery, pottery shards, weapons, and more.
Visit this website by the British Museum to explore more of the pots found in Greece cities and what we've found out about the Ancient Greeks from them.
